Peaches vs Nectarines: A Simple Swap

What’s the difference between these two fruits? For starters, they taste very similar, but they aren’t exactly the same. Nectarines tend to be smaller and firmer, with a thinner skin. The thicker skin of a peach is fuzzy, and these tend to be a bit juicier.

In a lot of cases, they are completely interchangeable, depending on what’s available to you or your own preferences. However, I have gathered a couple recipes that feature nectarines specifically, so you can highlight these sweet stone fruits as well.

Peach-Themed Tablescape

If you’re building a brunch around a specific ingredient, why not incorporate it into your decorations and place settings as well? One of my favorite features of the peach is the gorgeous coloring of the fruit, with its pinky-yellow skin and flesh. Bring in the motif of this tasty stone fruit’s distinct shape and color with a variety of decor pieces.
